In more positive flu-related news, a new colorway of the Air Jordan 12 being called "Reverse Flu Game" is reportedly set to debut during the holiday season.

According to soleheatonfeet, via DJ Folk, a pair styled in varsity red and black is currently on the calendar for a Dec. 26 launch. Retail will stick at $190. The shoe gets its unofficial nickname from being a flip of the Air Jordan 12 worn by Michael Jordan during his famous "Flu Game" performance in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, which featured a black base with red mudguards.

Images of the forthcoming retro have not yet surfaced, but zsneakerheadz provided the mock-up above to give us an idea of what to expect. Make a note of the date and continue to follow along for updates here at Sole Collector.
